OUR HISTORY –
It was 1945 when Warren T. Marshall purchased the Kearney Livestock Commission Co., a livestock auction market in Kearney, Nebraska. Over the next 10 years two of his sons, Eugene and Robin, graduated from auction school and became the primary auctioneers at the livestock market. Upon Warren’s death in 1967, Robin and Eugene purchased the livestock market from their father’s Estate and operated it successfully until the sale of the business in 1984. During the years Robin and Eugene also conducted many auctions of farm machinery and land throughout central Nebraska. In 1978, Robin’s son, Miles graduated from auction school and obtained a real estate brokers license. Miles initiated and developed the real estate business specializing in marketing agricultural and rural properties. In 1984, Eugene’s son Jeff, graduated from auction school and has since been very active in auctions of agricultural assets throughout the region.
